POR­TIA ROSEMOND & PA­TRICK RAGEN

Por­tia Rosemond and Pa­trick Ragen were born at the same hospi­tal – al­beit a few years apart, had mu­tual friends, and both went to col­lege at Stan­ford Univer­sity; how­ever, they some­how never crossed paths. The year af­ter Por­tia fin­ished an ex­change pro­gram at Har­vard Law School, Pa­trick be­gan his first year at the es­teemed univer­sity. “We un­for­tu­nately missed each other yet again,” says Pa­trick. It wasn’t un­til Por­tia came back the next year for a re­cruit­ing event that they were fi­nally in­tro­duced. “Although it was the first time we had met, some­thing felt strangely fa­mil­iar,” shares Pa­trick; how­ever, this brief meet­ing oc­curred only for them to go their separate ways. Two years later, they re­con­nected at events and par­ties while liv­ing in Los An­ge­les. “Be­fore we knew it, we were dat­ing,” he adds.
